O N Y X H O T E L is a hotel centrally located in Paceville, a hub of nightlife in Malta. The project consists of the redesign of the existing apartments, as well as a vertical extension of 4 floors to house a number of guestrooms.
The initial form was conceptualised as a grid, where every other square was subtracted to create negative and positive volumes. These volumes were then shifted along their axes, creating a playful series of solid and void which translate to rooms and terraces on the interior. These glass volumes were then wrapped in vertical fins to create dynamic shadows in the guestrooms, and allow for natural light to penetrate.
This exquisite model captures the very essence of our client's building design, made out of Granite and cut by our water jet cutter the model serves as a truly meaningful gift and a token of appreciation to our client.
